BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Efforts to stabilize transit in the Bismarck area have resulted in reduced service that has left some residents with disabilities without a ride.

Some riders have dropped from routes because they live outside city boundaries while others are experiencing long wait times. Some transit users argue that the issues have been ongoing.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that the Bis-Man Transit Board and Bismarck City Commission have proposed measures to resolve paratransit issues in the coming months, but some are skeptical of real change.

Sheryl Stradinger is the mother of two daughters with disabilities. She said she’s doing her best to transport her daughter, but that it’s a challenge.

Steve Heydt is the president of the Bis-Man Transit Board. He says the board is continuing to look for solutions for the lost service and has formed a committee to help.



GRAND FORKS, (NDNG_- The North Dakota National Guard, along with family, friends and community supporters, recognized more than 200 Soldiers from the 1st Battalion, 188th Air Defense Artillery (1-188th ADA) Regiment Sunday during a formal welcome home ceremony at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks. The event, which was open to the public, celebrated the 1-188th ADA’s recent return from the National Capital Region (in and around Washington, D.C.), where they were deployed for a nearly yearlong mission in support of Operation Noble Eagle.

During Operation Noble Eagle, Soldiers with the 1-188th ADA collaborated with personnel from other Department of Defense agencies as part of an integrated air defense system designed to protect airspace around the National Capital Region.

“We offer our deepest gratitude for protecting our nation’s capital,” said Gov. Doug Burgum. “Our pride in this battalion continues to grow with each deployment. You have proven once again that the North Dakota National Guard has some of the best Soldiers in the country.”

Lt. Col. JoDee Aubol, of West Fargo, commands the unit and Command Sgt. Maj. Joshua Entzel, of Bismarck, serves as the unit’s senior enlisted leader. Although the unit is headquartered in Grand Forks, it has units in Bismarck and Fargo. The Soldiers hail from communities across North Dakota, as well as cities in Minnesota, California, Nebraska and Wisconsin.

More than 30 Soldiers volunteered to remain on mission with the South Carolina-based 2nd Battalion, 263rd Air Defense Artillery Regiment to continue to support Operation Noble Eagle. They are expected to return to the state later this year.

“Today is about recognizing how you continue to serve our state and our nation,” said Maj. Gen. Alan Dohrmann, North Dakota adjutant general. “We’re here today to thank you for your volunteerism and your level of commitment, which has made you one of the most relevant units in the U.S. Army.”

The most recent National Capital Region mission marked the first deployment for about 80 Soldiers in the unit. More than half of those Guardsmen have been mobilized up to six times.

“The deployment was an overall great experience,” said 2nd Lt. Nick Kindelspire, who served as a tactical control officer in the Joint Air Defense Operations Center during the deployment, which was his first. Along with his team members, he was responsible for monitoring the air picture of weapons systems and coordinating with U.S. Air Force personnel.

“Our teams worked together well,” he said. “We took a lot of pride in our mission to protect the nation’s capital and we developed a strong sense of camaraderie during deployment.”

This was the 11th deployment for the 1-188th ADA since 2004, making it the most-deployed unit in the North Dakota National Guard. The unit supported the Operation Noble Eagle mission once before from July 2013 to April 2014. Prior to its National Capital Region mission, the unit deployed to Kosovo as part of a NATO peacekeeping mission, and air defense Soldiers also have deployed six times to Afghanistan and twice to Iraq.


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minneapolis, St. Paul and Anoka-Hennepin school districts are among those canceling classes as plows continue to clear more than a foot of snow from a record-breaking winter storm.

Minneapolis school officials say they called off classes Monday because it would be difficult for buses to get down side streets and because children might not be visible behind tall snowbanks.

Over the weekend law enforcement worked to keep up with hundreds of traffic accidents. About 750 flights were canceled over the weekend at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport.

Snow totals across the Twin Cities metro ranged from 12 to 16 inches.



MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Hundreds of flights have been canceled in Minneapolis as a deadly storm system sweeps across the central U.S., bringing heavy snowfall, powerful winds and rain to several states.

Officials say one runway reopened at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport late Saturday night, hours after all flights were grounded during a spring blizzard. Airport officials say the snow was coming down too fast to keep the runways clear or the planes deiced.

Airport spokesman Patrick Hogan says 469 flights were canceled before one runway reopened shortly after 10 p.m. He says crews are working overnight to get others reopened.

The snowfall is part of a storm system stretching from the Gulf Coast to the Great Lakes. The system moved into the region Friday. At least three deaths have been attributed to the weather in Wisconsin, Nebraska and Louisiana.


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Sioux Falls’ airport saw record traffic in 2017 for the seventh consecutive year, but this year could see a drop.

The Argus Leader reports that the Sioux Falls Regional Airport had more than a million passengers go through the airport last year. Airport Executive Director Dan Letellier says the spike is largely due to Frontier adding flights to Las Vegas.

But the airline recently decided to discontinue its direct flights between Sioux Falls and Las Vegas after its surge in flights last summer.

Letellier expects the loss of additional flights to result in an up to 12 percent decrease in seats this year, lowering the passenger totals for 2018.
